The Guinness World Records world record for the largest coffee bean mosaic measures 33.51 m² (360.69 ft²) and was achieved by Steve Halaszi (USA), at Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, on 27 February 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest pyramid of coffee cups; it consisted of 23,821 cups and was constructed by Birla institute of management technology (India) in Uttar Pradesh, India, on 25 September 2016.
GE was the first in the industry to deliver hot water via their refrigerators, which positioned them to take this next step and serve up coffee.
"Now you can prep your coffee without leaving the couch," says Dan Goldstein, director of marketing for GE Refrigeration, of the instant coffee app GE Kitchen.
